BGN Comic Shop #52 - Bad to the Bone
For your 52nd visit to the BGN Comic Shop, Jordan gives his double-wide review of the failed Johnny Blaze revival known as Ghost Rider: the Hammer Lane. We've got shape-shifting dolls, snazzy cardigan sweaters, sexy biker babes with terrible nicknames, interminably drawn-out fetch quests, the intoxicating allure of Hagerstown, MD and the dumbest assassination contract ever conceived! All that and a reckless mass murdering villain who is somehow more likeable than the reckless mass murdering hero! Plus, Jordan gives his spoiler-free review of Jessica Jones, AKA Netflix Knocks It Out of the Park Again! Also, is Agents of SHIELD's unending morass of plot holes and retcons merely being respectful to its comic book origins? #TeamEdwardJamesOlmos
Impromptu Who Episode 10: An Unearthly Child

Story Mode #08 - Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward
For your eighth episode of Story Mode, your host Jordan has a simple recipe for you! Take 1/2 cup of the movie Saw; mix with 3 teaspoons of 12 Monkeys; add just a pinch of Alien, the Terminator, Quantum Leap, Bioshock Infinite, Gran Torino and Blade Runner; set the blender on Anime and what do you get? The greatest video game narrative on the PS Vita?!?!? Plus you also get foxy half-naked secret agents, apples and bananas behind bars, cat puns, and termites! Also, Jordan offers his hopes for future adventure game reviews, like Europe: the Video Game and SherlockDickery! PS: Jordan + Luna 4EVA XOXO
